Vodafone announces cashback up to Rs 2200 on Micromax smartphones

Micromax Bharat 5

Vodafone and Indian smartphone maker Micromax today entered into a partnership to offer cashback of up to Rs. 2200 to their customers. This means with moderate use the phone it can power through just over two days.

Indian brand Micromax on Friday (1 December) launched its new affordable smartphone Bharat 5 in India.

Looking at the price point and specifications on offer, Bharat 5 will be competing with Xiaomi's Redmi 5A, which debuted in India on Thursday. It is keen on taking back its offline budget segment and it is evident from its Bharat range of smartphones.

In terms of specs, the clear-cut victor here is the Redmi 5A which comes boasting of a spec sheet that embarrasses not just the Nokia 2, but also the Bharat 5 with the hardware it brings to the battle.

Cameras in the Micromax Bharat 5 include a 5MP rear camera with LED flash and Bokeh mode, and a 5MP front-facing camera, which incidentally also comes with an LED flash support. Everything else on the Micromax Bharat 5 is pretty average and nothing to shout about. Bharat 5 like its predecessors will truly drive the next phase of smartphone adoption in the country, as a smartphone with 5000 mAh battery is pivotal for a market like India where the tier 3-4 cities still face severe power outage issues.

The dual-SIM smartphone features a 5.2-inch HD (1280x720) display. The battery of the phone is 5000mAh and that is why the tagline of the Micromax Bharat 5 smartphone is "The Power of 5". It boasts of a 5.2-inch full HD display and runs Android Nougat out-of-the-box. Bharat 5 is powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6737 quad-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage expandable via MicroSD up to 32GB. The phone gets 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Up front, there is another 5MP camera with LED flash. It has 1 GB RAM, which is disappointing when compared to the Xiaomi Redmi 5A, which lets you choose between 2 GB and 3 GB RAM. The battery of the phone is also the biggest highlight of the Bharat 5 smartphone. Connectivity options are- Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 3.5mm audio-jack, Micro-USB and Global Positioning System.
